Archaeometallurgy in Europe 2011 - 3rd International Conference

29 June to 1 July 2011
Deutsches Bergbau-Museum, Germany

The last two International Conferences, Archaeometallurgy in Europe I + II, were organized by the Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia in Milan (2003) and in Grado/Aquileia (2007), Italy.
In the mean time research in our Scientific Community has produced significant results on early metal working and processing.

The aim of this conference is to provide an overview of new insights and new approaches to the history of metallurgy in ...this part of the world. New regional studies, new instruments, and a changing pattern of research have clearly led to innovative scientific approaches to archaeometallurgy. This has long been a well established and most interesting field of research, and Europe has always been at the cutting edge.
The Conference will cover topics relevant to the investigation of the technology and diffusion of different metals and alloys used in ancient times, and of related (pre-) historic finds such as slag, furnaces, remains of production etc.It will present interdisciplinary scientific and archaeological investigations.

The Conference Archaeometallurgy in Europe reflects the evolution of metallurgy in an area which due to its geographic and geological characteristics is exceptionally rich in ore deposits and looks back on an extraordinary development in metallurgy.
Besides regional studies it will focus on new insights into the eastern part of Europe.

The following topics will be addressed:

Metallurgical innovation in early metallurgy in Europe:
from the Neolithic to the Medieval period
Regional studies
Early mining in Europe and the distribution of raw sources
Experimental archaeometallurgy
Reconstructing ancient technologies
New horizons: archaeometallurgy in eastern Europe and beyond
New approaches, new technologies in archaeometallurgy

For each topic, a key note lecture providing the state of the art will be held. Papers on archaeometallurgy of Non-European countries will be grouped in a special session.
